Science and Human Values
Publisher : Global Vision Publishing House
About the Book
The present work is, indeed, a serious effort to critically examine the relation between science and human values in philosophical and historical perspective. It is common acceptance that science and human values can not move together because science deals with facts, not with values, and its corollary that human value lies outside the realm of science. This objection to the mixing of science and values gradually disappears. Probably the most influential factor currently sustaining the science-values dichotomy is the prevailing acceptance of the contention of professional philosophy that it is logically impossible to determine what ‘ought to be’ from what ‘is’, or to derive ethical priorities from objective facts.
